Winchester Gardens, a Springpoint Senior Living community, announced it has once again earned the highest vote of confidence from CARF, an international nonprofit accreditor that sets standards of excellence for health and human service organizations.

An organization receiving a Five-Year Term of Accreditation has voluntarily put itself through a rigorous peer review process and demonstrated to a team of surveyors during an on-site survey that it is committed to conforming to CARF’s CCRC accreditation conditions and standards. Furthermore, an organization that earns CARF accreditation is commended on its quest for quality programs and services.

CARF reviewers made note of the mutual respect and family feeling among residents and staff; the community is clean and well maintained even in the midst of construction; residents are aware of and involved in planning; residents, families and employees are engaged in the LivWell health and wellness philosophy; extensive transition period for new residents; and the compassionate assisted living staff.

The coveted CARF seal of approval assures consumers that an organization has met or exceeded the highest quality standards of excellence and is committed to reducing risk, addressing health and safety concerns, respecting cultural and individual preferences and providing the best possible quality care.
